Just as the title says really. Apart from a spare change of clothes, is there anything I need to send for an almost 3 year old at nursery? I expected to see a list in the info pack, but there isn't one.

Waterproof coat or puddlesuit, pair of wellies (well worth buying a cheap pair, naming them and leaving them there) plus 2 or 3 changes of clothes, it’s anazing how filthy they can get through the course of a brilliantly fun day - painting, then digging up the garden, then water play....

Just a change of clothes really. Coat, hat and gloves, they usually spend time outdoors! Hope it goes well 🎃

First day went very well. 2nd day she cried when I left. It was out of the blue as she had been excited to go. Apparently cried after I left for maybe 5 minutes but didn't properly cheer up until the 'big room' opened when the rest of the staff arrived. She was fine when I came to get her and said she had fun. She told me lots of things she had done and sounds like she had a lovely time. But...

She has been saying she doesn't want to go again. Any advice how to make it easier for her next week? It's just the saying bye thing I think. She doesn't have a comforter of any kind. No particular favourite toy. No blanket, no dummy.
